Luke 5:13 (NKJV) Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him.


Well, hello, my friends! Let’s talk about the Goodness of God. This man, whose name was Alexander, had worked for one of the Mexican cartels as a drug runner and low-level hitman. The fast cars, nice clothes, and allure of power were a no-brainer for a guy who hated being powerless. Involved in a shootout, Alexander was shot in the stomach. Before the bullet went all the way through his body, it managed to sever his spinal column. Alexander felt his legs for the very last time just before he hit the ground after being shot.

Now, Alexander lived in the trash dump. Unable to escape the cartel, the dump, or the chair he was living in, he let his shoeless feet drag through the trash, and a terrible infection set in. He didn’t care because he couldn’t feel them anyway. “Hey man, why aren’t you wearing any shoes?” I asked. “It doesn’t matter. I’ve got feet like an elephant.” Alexander didn’t know it, but the term “feet like an elephant” was a prophetic God-phrase to me. So, as soon as he said he had feet like an elephant, I knew my shoes would be perfect for him. Miraculously and precisely, the shoes fit. He knew it was Jesus. Alexander gave his heart to Jesus that day because he could have hope in God’s Goodness.

Declaration: God’s Goodness is always willing to heal me. His Goodness heals hearts that are broken. God’s Goodness heals emotions. His Goodness heals me of life’s difficulties.
